Madeline Minx’s new music video RABBI OF RAP just dropped: https://youtu.be/xW8garNA4kA
In the Rabbi of Rap, Harold, a small time drug dealer, skips school to make a drug connection in the campus parking lot, despite his girlfriend Tiffany’s objections. When the deal goes awry, Tiffany is caught in the crossfire. Harold’s desire to avenge the shooting is challenged by a rapping Rabbi who shows him why education is the most powerful weapon.
The video is wildly entertaining and fun yet offers a powerful message. To choose education over violence. “Education is a weapon of mine, it ain’t a weapon of bullets, it’s a weapon of minds.” – Rabbi of Rap
Madeline Minx became interested in rap when she discovered her students use the art form to express their most vulnerable truths, fears, hopes and dreams. Student Alviana Johnson (aka M.C. Starstruck) raps during the song’s breakdown: “Too many youngsters wanna be ballers, and not enough wanna grow up to be scholars….why’s everyone wanna be Dwayne Carter? With no guns on me homie, I go harder.” (Lyrics by Jacori Bowers). This kind of fighting spirit inspires Minx (her real name is Noemi Zeigler) to push her students from varying socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds not only pursue career goals but exceed all expectations, mostly their own. Minx’s previous collaboration with her students was on hilarious rap music video FEMINEM, which was featured in The Huffington Post: http://huff.to/1iRs4zq
